CHHAPAAK Movie Story: Inspired by the life of Laxmi Agarwal, CHHAPAAK is the story of rare triumph and hope. 19-year-old Malti (Deepika Padukone) is leading a happy peaceful life, but she becomes a victim of a devastatingly brutal acid attack. CHHAPAAK movie takes us through the journey of Malti, how she copes with all the hurdles, prejudices, discriminations, surgeries, etc. Gains courage and files a PIL for the acid ban in the country and how she wins people with her inner beauty and discovers life when it is believed that everything has been burned due to the attack.
CHHAPAAK Movie Review: Actress Deepika Padukone as the acid attack victim looks painfully disturbing and its heart-wrenchingly haunting. Meghna Gulzar’s narration of the disturbingly hard-hitting reality that makes us experience the plight of an acid attack victim and the pain and suffering they go is sensitively told with evocative empathy and deeply affecting sincerity and grace. Doesn’t opt for any high pitch melodrama, keeps it subtle and real. The level-headed view makes an impact and that’s almost like an epic.
CHHAPAAK Movie Verdict: CHHAPAAK painfully confronts a devastating truth and it’s heartfelt throughout. Deepika Padukone anchors this incredibly courageous, soul stirringly uplifting & beautiful story of life and hope that stays with you.
CHHAPAAK Movie Rating: 3/5.
